Greatest Comedians of All TimeThese comedians don't need to be the funniest necessarily (although they can be), but they should be voted up for also having groundbreaking or really intelligent ideas and/or great social, political or religious satire.
Greatest natural comedian of all time. His talent has never been repeated or recreated.
Watch his sketch on golf and you'll be crying of laughter in no time.
The fact that he committed suicide makes him less funny, sadly
Robin williams is an awesome man.
Well, obviously he's up here. He was the first comedian to make rants about things that he hated funny
George has no line and he is partying in a pub beyond the line!
Compared to Carlin, nobody else on this list is even funny.
This should be 1 he is so funny
He is the best of all times, debating about this matter is a waste of time! I wonder why Robin tops the list; is it because he is dead? because people tend to be extremely redundant when it comes to the deceased.
There are a lot of people in the list that most non-English speaking people have never heard of; but when it comes to Mr. Bean, everyone knows him. He's made the people of every generation laugh. I can't think of anyone else topping him.
Other comedians have to say something to make people laugh, but Roman had done it. That's why there's no language barrier in his comedy.
He made the world laugh without even saying much and he's also good with funny dialogues in his other movies.
This guy just defines comedy more than anyone else on this list.
Comedic genius. Top 3 standup comedians of all time, and a prodigious T.V. writer to boot. Along with Dave Chappelle, he's the only comedian guaranteed to make me laugh or think hard whenever I see anything they produce, from standups to T.V..
Words the great ideas he has for jokes perfectly to make them as funny as possible. He is a "comic's comic" and he is just so down to earth and can talk about any subject. I don't agree with 100% of what he says but still is highly intelligent and just a true professional comic. Louie is a great show as well
Definitely the best comeidan that is still active today. Extremely good at making people laugh.
He is awesome. no more to say
This guy should be way higher! One of the best comedians of all time
He is a giver. He gives himself all the time.
You can laugh by just seeing him!
He's just the best
How is he not on this list
he real good super funny clever
Just... Just watch his opinion of Yoko Ono and you will see why this guy is amazing haha
very sharp funny human
He brought ideas for comedy into the mainstream and defined a lot of what comedy is today. Good number 1
unusual kind of humour
Was the best
Charlie Chaplin and Rowan Atkinson are two great comedians who are capable of making everyone laugh by talking little to no talking at all!
Was the first great comedian in the world! We should respect him for his tramp character! His greatest film The Gold Rush watch it and enjoy!
He practically invented modern American comedy!
Kick him higher up and his hat will fall off
Eddie was the first comedian to reach the apex of celebrity. Raw and Delirious are both among the greatest standup specials of all time. Eddie is top 5 hands down.
He is the GOAT believe that
This guy is so famous that I don't really have to describe why he is so good but I will anyway. His voice is one of the greatest voices ever, his ideas are just so true and his punchlines can just make an audience of thousands of people go psycho. This is because he builds up to his punchlines for so long that it creates the perfect amount of suspence and anticipation that would make anything he said funny.
Put Norm in the room with any other comedian, he always comes out on top.
I always consider Hicks, Carlin and Stanhope to be the big three of intelligent, critical thinkers who should be president. Its too bad that Hick's career was cut short and he didn't survive long enough to see his predictions about the current world we live in be right.
Best comedian along side Carlin.
He should be no lower than #2. Richard Pryor is the god of standup. He was Chappelle and Murphy before Chappelle and Murphy.
Prior is so far beyond anyone else on this list it's hard to give any merit to a list putting him so low on the list.
List has no credibility
Pryor is 1 or 2. Ridiculous.
No one more funny in the room
The greatest while using the simplest material!
Jerry Seinfeld Is Hilarious
Vulnerable, self deprecating brilliant
